Task no. 2
Analysis of visual features
For this part of the lesson, view the Visual Analysis pdf by clicking "download resource" on the left-hand side.
Discuss the sample analysis, then form small groups. Each group is assigned an image from the PowerPoint slide to analyse and present to the class. Groups can use A4 paper (white or colourful) to make annotations which can be blue tacked to the projected image during their presentation. The focus should be on the following visual features:
- reading path
Extension: Compare and contrast visual features in the earlier illustrations with those towards the end of the story. Strong differences in colour are notable.
